Reach + Raise

Wellness Weekend

October 16 - 18, 2020


A weekend of physical wellness and fundraising for SACS!

Why We Need You!

Each year, our community looks forward to the third Friday in September, when a passionate team of staff and community members drop everything and spend 24 hours running Ragnar's 200-mile Reach the Beach (RTB) relay race across New Hampshire. While our team runs, our students and staff embark on local day trips to mountains, hills, and ropes courses in the name of health, wellness, and community building. This annual event is our fundraising kickoff to the year and supports health and wellness initiatives both at SACS and in the Salem community.

Ragnar's REACH the Beach is cancelled this fall, but health, wellness, and community are not! During these difficult times, physical activity is one of the best ways to stay healthy and exercise is always more fun with others! We invite you to recruit friends and family and join us for Wellness Weekend! This virtual event has something for everyone, from runners to paddleboarders, extreme athletes to families. We invite you to REACH for your own goals by picking the event that's right for you, or choosing your own adventure!

This year's fundraiser is more important than ever. COVID has impacted our community in significant ways. Your support will help ensure that we are able to meet our students' unprecedented needs this year. We hope that you will pick up the proverbial torch and help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000!
